This is just a place-holder to note that I’m eagerly awaiting the May 2016 release of an issue of Public Culture—a fantastic academic and cultural journal—on the theme, Climate Change and the Future of Cities. An essay of mine on São Paulo, called “The Rationed City,” will be in the issue. Long timelines in academia are frustrating. But worry not! Sea levels will be rising for millennia, thanks to the carbon already emitted by human civilization. So there will be lots of time for readers to digest the issue and take thoughtful action.
